Several DC Chowhounders met today for Dim Sum at New Fortune in Gaithersburg, perhaps inspired by this recent thread:
Service was top rate, and the carts come quickly. You can quickly have too much food on the table, even when you are sharing. Without a lazy susan we passed the dishes family style, which worked out fine.
My favorites were the vegetable (was that rabe or spinach?) and the mushrooms. Of the dumplings, the shrimp was nicest. The pork and shrimp dumpling had a bit of shrimp shell inside.
I think it was a mistake to ask for the sauce, a soy sauce reduction, which was waaay too salty.
The best part of the day was meeting new friends and sharing a meal with fellow hounds. Thanks for coming! Thanks MoCoMe for organizing!
